Style Files: Fruitful Prints

What do you wear when the weather is fickle? Well, this was a question that I was pondering when I wore this outfit, which is exactly the reason why I usually dress in layers. A friend of mine sent us invites to her son’s little league footballers game, so I went to have a good catch up and provide friendly support earlier in the summer season. But, the weather was going to be volatile—rain, sunshine, humidity, and bits of gusty winds would pretty much sum it up.

It was also quite an interesting, but very pleasant day. One of the parents from the game came up to me in the midst of conversing with my friend, and after greeting us she told me that she knew me. I didn't quite understand at first since I had never met her, but then she stated that she knew of my blog because of my friend, and reads it. We spoke quite a lot about interior design (her profession) and other art related things, then talked about antiques and vintage, which I loved!

I was completely dumbfounded, knowing that someone so far away (who was a non-blogger and a stranger to me) would be so kind to mention and be inspired by my little space in the blogosphere. It's always an interesting encounter when you're actually able to meet followers in-person. 
Right, of course, I had my business cards and blogging cards ready in hand, because you just never know what could potentially become of a mere encounter! Anyway, sometimes it's entirely the smallest things ... unexpected and awe-inspiring moments like these that make a day much brighter, despite the weather.

But, I've digressed long enough. This printed dress is one that I have had awhile, however I only seem to don it at the park or on weekend outings. The fact that it has pockets was surely one of the main reasons that I bought it, aside from the adorable cherry print.

I hope your weekend was amazing. I am still away and will be back to visiting your blogs soon.

  2. This is so pretty, love the dress. And I think it's the perfect solution with this season, to dress in layers because the weather is so un-predictable. Love the added belt too :) I hope you have a great new week :) xx

  4. I would have been delighted too to meet someone from afar who had been following my blog. You just don't know who might be reading! When the weather is changable it's a good idea to have plenty of layers and your dress is perfect for when the sun comes out. It's such a cute print.

  14. Happy Tuesday Madison!! How cool was that. I never met anybody who knew about my blog. We need some blogging cards too. Just in case. That dress looks marvelous. Love the cute cherry print. I can't remember if I have something with fruits prints. Love cherries, strawberries and bananas. Almost forgot I love the pineapple print too and I'm quite sure I got that somewhere haha. Hab noch viel Spaß. Fallst du lachen möchtest, schau dir unseren Post an. Wir tragen Dirndl :D

    Liebe Madison, das kann ich mir vorstellen, dass Du ziemlich verblüfft warst! Ich habe bisher noch nie jemanden Fremden getroffen, der meinen Blog liest, nur eine Arbeitskollegin hat mich "entdeckt" und darauf angesprochen und ich war auch ein wenig irritiert :) Dein Kleid ist sehr schön und Du siehst sehr gut aus <3

  27. Lovely dress :) Love it more when worn with the hat. I'm not very much into fruit prints when it comes to clothing, but I do have a beloved sweater with...guess what?...cherries on it :D I'm just reminded to wear it again. I think I'll post on instagram so you can see. I'm more into flowers on dresses. Hope you're midweek is great! x

  28. I love your cherry dress! Thinking about it, I don't have fruit printed clothes... but I do have cherry earrings that I once bought in Japan :)

  29. Oh, that is great! I am sure you were flattered and even more motivated to continue blogging! You deserve it for sure! About the outfit - the dress is pretty cool! Now I realized that I don't have any piece with a fruit print in my closet. Hm, I have to change that for the next summer! Have a great day!
